New litter bins have been installed and damaged bins replaced in Northampton town centre.

Northampton Town Centre Business Improvement District (BID) has this month funded 15 new bins across the town centre, as part of its campaign to creating a clean, tidy and litter free environment for visitors and businesses.

A spokeswoman for BID said the organisation’s hosts, who patrol the streets, had reported litter hotspots and bins that needed replacing.

“As a result eight bins have been replaced in Sheep Street, Commercial Street, Market Square, Castilian Street and Bridge Street, and seven new litter bins have been installed on Angel Street, Fish Street, Campbell Square Car Park and St Giles Street,” the spokeswoman explained.

“This is the second phase of litter bin replacement and installations, part of a series of activities to make a visible difference to the town centre,” she said.

Jessica D’Aulerio, chair of Northampton Town Centre BID and owner of town centre print firm Tangerine Red, said: “These new litter bins will make a real difference to our streets and our overall town centre environment, which is a key objective for the BID.

“They come hot on the heels of our recent programme of window cleaning and vinyl installation, a programme of improvements designed to enhance the appearance of empty shop fronts in the town centre and improve the ambience of the streets whilst the premises are waiting to be occupied.”
